DANC 203 Fall 2013 Intermediate/Advanced Ballet: Technique, Variations and History

Also offered Spring 2014

This course is designed for dancers who have achieved an intermediate/advanced level of ballet technique. Students will have technique class twice a week, followed by men's work and pointe work for the women. Both male and female students will be taught and coached in variations from existing ballets in a third session (at a mutual time to be determined at the first class meeting). Brief discussions about assigned readings and/or video/performance viewings will center on various phases of ballet history, and students will write two short research papers on a figure or topic related to our areas of study. When applicable the class will go on one or two field trips per semester to attend performances by professional ballet companies. Evaluation will be based on participation and progress throughout the semester. For Spring Semester, depending on your role in the performance, you may not be required to meet on both days of the conference; all will be required to participate in the lab, time to be determined based on students' availability. This course may be taken for academic and/or physical education credit and MAY BE REPEATED for academic credit. PE-only participants must attend the ballet technique portion of the class two times per week for credit.
